Eltje Degenhart (1946-2015) Biography


Born in Holland in 1946, Eltje Degenhart moved to Canada with his family in 1951. While growing up in the city of Weyburn and in the Moose Mountain region of Saskatchewan, Eltje demonstrated an early aptitude for the creative arts. He began his formal art studies at the Alberta College of Art. From there, he moved to the University of Regina, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Art Education. While at the U. of R., he studied under renowned Canadian artists Ted Godwin, Joe Fafard and Art McKay. In 2001, Eltje retired from a 27-year teaching career and began painting full-time.

Eltje's stunning landscapes were quite impressionistic in style. As he once noted, “My issues are with prairie space and the dominance of the horizons. The power of colour to create that space and its psychological impact on the viewer are important to me. The subtle mood created through the use of both muted and vivid colour is an essential component of my paintings. I strive for a quality of atmosphere, light and reflection, the latter in particular in my water landscapes. I believe that when I paint, I act as a filter through which my prairie experiences flow, rather than as a straight illustrator of exact information, hence, the abstract, interpretive style in my work.

My primary source of inspiration is the southeastern area of Saskatchewan, which provides an endless selection of subject matter. The changing seasons and the varied terrain are a source of subtle and profound wonder. I enjoy playing and experimenting with the underpainting and use digital photographs for reference only."
